Thanks you Lia for stopping by the blog today! Here are a few questions to spice up the tour.
How did you get started with paranormal romance?
It was a light bulb moment. LOL. I started reading paranormal romance about five years ago and fell in love with the different worlds. I decided I’d try to write my own.
What are your favorite characters to write about?
I love characters who are strong, compassionate, loyal, and funny.
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Horror movies or classic film?
Cheeseburger or salad?
Depends on my mood. LOL
Pantster or Plotter?
What was the toughest scene you ever had to write?
I recently had to hurt one of my heroes in my WIP.
The anatomy of a sex scene: how do you construct a bite your nails hot scene?
These are tough for me because I can’t write it with other people around. It’s weird, I know. I’m getting better though. Now I just write it all out, then go back and add the feeling, sights, smells, bites and so on.
What is your next writing project?
I’m in editing with book 3 in my Ashwood Falls series and writing book 3 in The Divinities series. Plus I just started plotting a new series that I will be co-authoring with my BFF Carrie Ann Ryan.

A Tiger’s Claim
Ashwood Falls: Book One
As the Alpha’s only daughter Shayna Andrews has always been treated like a rare gem, protected like royalty, and she’s suffocating. Her longing to be independent has driven her to sneak out one evening after dinner. After relishing in being able to run free without an escort, she finds herself face-to-face with the enemy, miles from home, and nearly loses her life until a lone wolf comes to her aid.
Travis Hunter’s main objective is to destroy the Onyx Pack—a group of drug using, murdering rogue shifters. His seek-and-destroy plans are put on hold when he rescues a female from a brutal attack. The beautifully exotic tiger shifter, Shayna, stirs a passion he thought died with his long-lost mate.
When Shay’s first heat cycle slams into her, Travis has no choice but to submit to her needs—and his own. But there is always a price to sleeping with the Pack princess. Not only will they have to face her Pack, Shay and Travis will have to deal with a mating that is beyond a single night and could have consequences more than either of them had thought. And when Travis finds out Shay wears the enemy’s brand, things will go from bad to worse.
Warning: One alpha female who doesn't take no for an answer, a wolf with more on the line than just his heart, and a combustible attraction that's sure to cause more than one sweaty night.

Her favorite things are spending time with family, traveling, reading, writing, chocolate, coffee, nature and hanging out with her kitties.
The opening scene of Tiger Claim was a great lead in. I felt what Shay was experiencing-the annoyance at the men in her life (oh yeah!), the feeling of being caged and the wonderful excitement of freedom she got from being free in the woods, even for awhile. But you know what they say about good things lasting...When some creeps show up and try to have their way with Shay (hey, that sort of rhymes) Travis (hunky!!!) steps in and saves the day. (Oh no...I think I have a sexy Dr. Seuss thing happening here. Rhyming again!)
Throughout the book, the sheer force of nature that develops between Shay and Travis was spellbinding and I felt it all the way to my toes. A good shape shifter romance with some smokin hot sex scenes and characters you grow to care about. Great read! If this is the start to the series, then I am so there for the rest of it. Great story Lia. :)
